Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

On Monday's show of 2/20/1
our first guest Jennifer Schallert shares her journey as a mother of 2 boys into active partipation in democracy at the local level. Jenn as a volunteer joined the Integrated Voter Engagement Team of NBOB to register voters in neglected areas of the county. Emboldened by the large turnout for the Women's March in January, Jenn announces a free Happy Hour called:  Powerful Women Reuniting, from the March to Our Future, to bring about conversation and networking between local politicians and women in the community.  The link to the event is on the show's archive page.

Our second guest Jolene Strange talks of her journey to the forefront of the medical cannabis and recreational cannabis entry into the commercial market.  Jolene joined the Board of Directors of the Sonoma County Growers Association and professionally helps growers to enter the legal but highly regulated market.  Jolene talks about the hastily decided Measure A offered to the voters in the county by the Board of Supervisors (BOS) without any opposition printed in the Voter Pamphlet Guide for the ballot of March 7, 2017.  The county needs a funding source for the new land use regulation passed by the BOS in December 2016 to take advantage of the new California State cannabis laws, and hopes to sqeak by with majority vote for the General Fund tax measure.  Yet the voices of patients and current growers supplying the medicine to patients were dealt severe restrictions and prohibitions from growing at their current locations, promising to raise prices of the medicine and disrupt communities and relationships formed around the implementation of the Compassionate Use Act of 1996. The County was invited to take part in this radio discussion, but did not return calls. Links to the land use ordinance and tax measure are on the show's archive page.

On Monday's show of 2/13/17 WSA170213 our guests Faith Ross and Gloria Robinson talk about Black History in Sonoma County and how they came to be active in the community to promote and share African American culture. Every year Black History Month Events are presented in February, which we will list on the show's archive page. Also the Petaluma Museum features this month Black Athletes - their challenges, triumphs, and impact on American Culture

On Monday's show of 2/6/17 WSA170206 our guest Dr. Harriet Fraad continues from where we left our discussion on our show of 12/19/16 to describe the importance of human connections in our life for personal and societal mental health.  Dr. Fraad lists the 4 legs of social connections which support healthy mental lives.

On Monday's show of 1/30/17  WSA170130  we first report on the packed event on Sunday of the  North Bay Community Engagement Fair at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds,  Our first Guest is Kimberley Kompel, who describes what moved her to march and what she experienced besides a sea of Pink Pussy Hats in the San Francisco part of the national Million Women March on January 21, 2017, the day after the Inaguration of Donald Trump as President of the USA. 
Our Guest is Alicia Ramon, who the Chair of the new Sonoma County Independent Office of Law Enforcement Review and Outreach (IOLERO), Alicia is an attorney specializing in tenant rights, civil rights and personal injury claims, Alicia also currently represents clients suing the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Rosa Police Department, and Sebastopol Police Department concerning the seizure of vehicles. She was also active in seeking reconciliation for the killing of 12-year old Andy Lopez for carrying a toy rifle that appeared threatening to a Sheriff Deputy.  Alicia describes her path to being Chair of IOLERO and how IOLERO, as stated on its website, provides all members of the public with independent and effective review of complaints against the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, making policy recommendations to improve the responsiveness of the Sheriff’s Office to the community, and maintaining continual engagement with members of the public in Sonoma County.  Alicia reminds us that Sonoma County has not declared itself a "sanctuary county" and that the Sheriff's Office will most likely cooperate with the Federal ICE regarding undocumented residents.
IOLERO signed on to the petition It Won't Happen Here - Sonoma County Resistance to the Trump Agenda, about which our guest Susan Lamont on the show of 1/9/17 talked. Alicia is also a Board Member of Bilingual Broadcasting Foundation, Inc. (BBFI), the non-profit foundation which holds the licenses  for Radio KBBF.

Arranged by most recent show first.

 

Visit  the Community Media Center's CMediaLab website for the cable TV broadcast schedule for the current month where you can Find "Women's Spaces" show slots and Elaine Holtz Special show slots.  I find the browser Find function works better for searching the page rather than the Search of CMedia.   If you click on the show's title on the schedule a new window comes up with an online video (if available) and the schedule of the broadcast of the particular show over the next weeks.
